Over the past couple of years, artsPlace has been hard at work examining our internal and external practices and working towards developing a comprehensive strategy to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive organization for all.
At artsPlace, we honour and celebrate your uniqueness. Diversity, equity and inclusion practices are a high priority for us as individuals, as a workplace, and as a community organization.
Over the next several years, we commit to developing intercultural competences in our staff and artists, building upon our relationships with diverse community members, and shifting our organizational structures and capacity to increase inclusivity and to best serve diverse populations. We recognize that true systemic change is a long process and are committed to learning, growing and changing as an organization to better serve our Bow Valley community.
Here are some of our most immediate objectives to achieve this goal.
